by Bennett, Tony with Will Friedwald
New York: Pocket Books, 1998. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. This memoir tracks the singer's life from his birth in 1926 in Astoria, Queens, as Antonio Dominick Benedetto, through adolescent dalliances with music and art, an overseas stint in the Army and a series of stateside breaks that established him as a jazzy, technically masterful interpreter of popular standards. Includes numerous textual photographs and illustrations, and a selection of Bennett's paintings reproduced in full color. Signed by Tony Bennett on the front flyleaf, with an invitation to an A&E Network event honoring the singer laid in. Octavo. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.
